Join us for a Sacred Drum Ceremony to Honor the Harvest Corn Moon!

In honor of the Harvest or Corn Moon, the lighthouse will be hosting an informal drumming circle during this event. Anyone that has a drum is welcome to bring it and join in. The Harvest Moon is the full moon nearest the start of fall or the autumnal equinox. This full moon name is attributed to Native Americans because it marked when corn and other crops were harvested.

Joining the informal drum circle will be Paul Eagleheart from the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas. He will be doing a sacred, Native American drum ceremony in honor of the full moon. Paul Eagleheart has done many ceremonies for causes including protection of sacred sites. He will begin the ceremony with a prayer song and will be explaining several Native American traditions.
